History : The Midland Redevelopment Authority (MRA) was appointed custodians of the Midland Railway Workshops by the State Government in 1999 and it was the role of the authority to fund and support major permanent public art works in the area. In early 2000, Kath Wheatley was commissioned to create  a series of quirky long-legged sculptures which paid tribute to the strong connection between the workers, family and friends of the Midland Railway Workshop.
